And then in the future, everything changes. He’s been through it all, of course-watched humanity rediscover the heavens above them, watched them begin to wonder what’s out there. He cheered with the rest of the world when they landed on the moon, cheered as if he’d found Isla de la Muerta all over again, because there was something new. New treasure, a new horizon. But then they stop going, stop exploring, and he goes back to riding tankers across the rising seas. So he’s surprised when one day he wakes up from a night with his bottle of rum (his truest companion), and hears that there’s colonies on Mars now, and they need ships to supply them. He spends the next decade crafting new identities, learning all he can to qualify for the job, and after several tries (and even more faked deaths-this immortality thing isn’t all it’s cracked up to be in the age of the inerasable digital self) he gets it. The ships go nearly constantly now, the needs of the terraforming project creating an unbroken line of vessels from Mars to Earth and back again. “Show me that horizon,” he whispers to himself, his personal prayer of thanksgiving, each time they leave orbit, because the worlds, the stars are in motion and it’s never the same, with nearly three years for a round trip the ports are always different, even if they keep the old names. And finally one trip something goes wrong with the reactor, they’re too low on power and have to deploy the backups, and Jack (Lucky Jack, they call him, for he survives too many things he shouldn’t but science has yet to accept that maybe some things weren’t old wives’ tales after all) goes out for the spacewalk to bring up the solar panels. And as they rise, geometric patterns black against the sun’s glare, he’s struck by a powerful sense of déjà vu, because it’s all here-wind and sails, a ship beneath his feet and stars above his head, horizon in all directions. He wonders, for a moment, if the reason he’s still here is because the universe wanted a witness, to mourn the end of one age of exploration, and rejoice in the birth of the next.

Thank you for writing this. It made me cry, but oh I am so relieved to see the yearning for the stars.

That shouldn’t have given me as many feels as it did…

when thinking about your ot3, consider this:

• which one sleeps in the car
• which one is always unhappy with whats playing on the radio
• who drives
• who gets carsick
• who is always anxious about traffic and…

It’s actually a fitness app for iOS and Android. You are Runner 5, a survivor of the zombie apocalypse sent to a small survivor settlement in England. Except your helicopter gets blown up with a rocket launcher and you are saved by the radio operator of the settlement? Sam Yao, and Dr Maxine Myers.

It’s fully voice acted, has 3 seasons and a bunch of extra missions. Also a cast split 50/50 male and female, canonical gay and lesbian characters and couples, PoC characters (Sam is Chinese, Maxine is an African American lady and there are more). And it’s awesome.

when thinking about your ot3, consider this:

• which one sleeps in the car
• which one is always unhappy with whats playing on the radio
• who drives
• who gets carsick
• who is always anxious about traffic and other drivers
• who Hates Other Drivers
• who just hates cars in general
• who forgot to pee before they left

And now I would like to imagine Janine and Simon and Sam roadtripping together (they would be a cute OT3 alright?).

Sam conks out almost instantly in the care. They’re pretty amazed at his ability to remain unconscious through the bumps of the terrain and the occasional crawler.

Simon constantly tries to put on ABBA and country music. Sam tries to put on Eurovision and Keisha St. Cloud. Janine laments that she is travelling with *children* and institutes a veto.

Janine drives. She drives like she is driving a tank and gets extreme road rage over people having abandoned their vehicles just because of one bloody apocalypse. Honestly! Turning into a zombie is no reason to park in the middle of the road!

Sam gets kind of carsick after eating too much one night.

Simon really hates cars. Assholes always think they own the road and that they can try to run you down when you’re just about to beat your personal record for a 10K. (He never really needed a car; lived close enough to run to work every day).

who are these people

Character from Zombies, Run! Unless you mean the people commenting in which case… the Zombies, Run! fandom.

Just a note, if I am ever in the middle of a conversation with you on Skype or AIM or whatever, and I just disappear, it is not because I suddenly decided I hate you, it is most likely because I fell asleep on my keyboard. Again. 

And sometimes when I wake up from these impromptu naps, I am too dazed to do much more than switch off my laptop and drag myself to bed. 

I have just had to explain what ‘eat out’ means to my mother *facepalm*

"We’ll be sucking sausages in Berlin by tea time."

"I do hope the cafes are well stocked. Everyone seems determined to eat out the moment we get there."

But at least she’s not watching ‘rich straight old white people go on holiday and have hilarious misadventures’ again.
